Arsenal forward, Bukayo Saka has cited a key advantage the Gunners have over Tottenham Hotspur in their upcoming North London Derby on Sunday afternoon.
Arsenal are set to lock horns with Tottenham at the Emirates in a Premier League derby.
Ahead of the encounter, Saka spoke to Arsenal’s in-house media about the advantage of playing at home in front of the club’s supporters.
The England star reckons the fans and the environment they will create at their stadium could give them an edge in their match against Tottenham.
“I’m really excited, it is a massive advantage [to be at home]. Personally, the feeling I have every time I play at the Emirates is that we are going to win and the people are behind us,” Saka said (per the club’s official website).
“The support that the fans give us, not allowing us to lose, gives us that extra confidence boost.”
“Since last year, all the players and everyone around the club has realised what the fans have been doing at the Emirates and they’ve created a really beautiful atmosphere. I’m forever grateful for the love and support that we receive.”
